As Andrew and others have noticed, the US House of Representatives is having a bit of an inbound mail volume issue...

The House has implemented measures to limit the amount of e-mails flowing through to congressmen during high-traffic periods. If a person is tries to e-mail his representative during one of those periods, he may receive a mechanized response indicating the system is overwhelmed and to try later. Ventura said the problem could last through the week.

"We had people working on it all night, and we still do," he said.
It took some digging to be absolutely sure, but John Goodson found documentation that indicates that the US House upgraded or migrated to Exchange 2003 during 2H2007.
